Note 069
From Chapter 55 of the Decline & Fall

This singular epithet is derived from the Armenian language, and Ancient Greek is interpreted in Greek by Ancient Greek or Ancient Greek As I profess myself equally ignorant of these words, I may be indulged in the question in the play, "Pray, which of you is the interpreter?" From the context, they seem to signify Adolescentulus (Leo Diacon l. iv. MS. apud Ducange, Glossar. Graec. p. 1570).
